Bio Photo My Find-a-Grave activity is only moderately curtailed by that essential 'nuisance' of "having to earn a living". I generally respond to queries, SACs and requests as soon as I can get a round tuit. Sincere apologies for all delays, and thank you for your patience. =]) Beth

Copyright courtesy requested! If you wish to use a photo that I have uploaded to a memorial here on Find-a-Grave, and post it to another website 'as yours', KINDLY ASK ME FIRST. In general, I don't mind if anyone uses my photos for their personal records, and I would hope my name would be included for the source file. But please, if you're going to post them to a FEE-BASED/SUBSCRIPTION website (including Ancestry, which as we all know ultimately profits from _everything_ contributed to their site), it would be nice if credit to the photographer (me) could be given within the posting. I don't know if other sites make this possible, but something such as: "Photograph taken by OhSunnyOne, Ancaster, Ont" would be appreciated.
Thank you for this consideration.

RE: Seale Family Barbados
Dear OhSunnyOne

Many thanks for your reply. It's actually my husband that is descended from a Bajan Seale line. His maternal grandfather was the baker, Lionel Seale. I really don't have much to go on as his family is extremely tight-lipped about their lineage (maybe they genuinely don't know) but I have found this to be the case in general with many Bajan families. I've managed to find that our Lionel had his own bakers' business on Roebuck Street and had at least one brother, Preston (a butler) and a sister, Sybil (married a Matthews; mother of Gordon & Basil Matthews of Barbados). Preston had several children, including Sybil, still alive & in her 90s, living in Toronto area, Neilton (died in Toronto), Anita & Ina?). Lionel, Preston & Sybil snr's. dad was apparently a Seale who worked as a plantation manager in St Andrew. Will keep you posted if we find anything else. I'm very new to this and don't have a lot of time but am finding it fascinating.

Very best wishes for this festive season! Thanks again.

Seale Family Barbados
Dear ohSunnyone

I am searching for any info re: Lionel Seale; born c. 1901, St Peter Barbados; buried Westbury cemetary May 4, 1938. He was a baker, residing Bank Hall, St Michael. He is sid to be a relative of Sir C. David Seale (grandson of Reginal Leon (RL Seale).

Have you come across him in your research?
Grateful for any info you might have

Thank you so very much for the photo of my uncle's headstone. I have never been able to visit the Barrie area as yet. Could you please adjust his birth date to read 1914 instead of 1941. Again, thank you for spending the time to care about genealogy.

RE: John Webster
You are welcome.
I have not had a reply yet but I think they only work a small number of hours. If I do hear, I will let you know.
Best Regards

John Webster
I have managed to photograph the grave of Elizabeth and John Webster. This grave is with the other Housman graves and is the tallest memorial.
I have added a picture which shows all 5 plus on the right hand side there is another which I assume is not part of the group.
I have had a look around the churchyard and the other cemetery and cannot find any others. I have emailed the church office to ask if there are any inside the church but have not had a reply.
Hope this info is of use to you.

Thank you for the edits and correct maiden name. If you are related, I'll gladly transfer her memorial to you as well as any other Hespeler memorials that I manage. I'm very distantly related to Mary Hope Keachie.

I've updated your suggestions. Sad to see your interior photos have precedence over actual Gate photos. Oh well, keep up the good work.

RE: Edward Housman and Lucy Agnes Housman
I will arrange the transfers for you as they are more appropriate to you.

Thanks for your addition to the memorial of my uncle.

Many thanks and may you have continued success with your searches.

Kind Regards
